Fats NavarroNostalgia (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Savoy (Japan), 1947. Used ... $11.99
Classic early bebop from trumpter Fats Navarro – a seminal album that brings together earlier famous 78s recorded for Savoy Records! The set features the late great trumpeter leading 3 different small groups – all top-shelf lineups, with players that include Charlie Rouse or Dexter Gordon on tenor, Tadd Dameron or Al Haig on piano, and Art Blakey on drums! The recordings have the raw bebop energy that characterized the best of these Savoy sessions, but Navarro's playing adds touches of lyricism not usually heard on recordings like these. Certainly one of the albums that will convince you why Fats was so great – with the tracks "Barry's Bop", "Dextrose", "Stealing Trash", and "Hollerin' & Screamin". CD

✨✧ Billy EckstineMister B & The Band ... LP
Savoy, 1945/1946. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
Amazing work from the early, legendary years of Billy Eckstine – that time when he was fronting one of the hippest backing groups a vocalist could hope to have! Eckstine's voice was already becoming the stuff of legend by the time of these recordings – but thanks to contributions from a host of famous boppers, his band was getting equal fame, too – a really legendary lineup that includes such greats as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie,Kenny Dorham, and Fats Navarro on trumpets; Wardell Gray, Dexter Gordon, and Gene Ammons on tenor; Leo Parker on baritone; Art Blakey on drums; and many other huge names too! The band was virtually a school for a whole generation of jazzmen to come – allowing them to play together, get to know each other, and spin off in important small groups – much in the way the Kenton group a few years later allowed so much development on the west coast. And amidst all this great music, Billy's vocals have never sounded better – much bolder and hard-swinging than in later years! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousClassic Savoy Be-Bop Sessions 1945 to 1949 (10CD set) ... CD
Savoy/Mosaic, Late 40s. New Copy 10CD ... $168.99 169.00
The roots of modern jazz never sounded this great before – and this is the first time ever that all the early bop recordings by Savoy have been properly brought together in one place! Savoy was one of the most important labels to record the early bop pioneers – and had a dedication to the music that begin in 1945, and moved well into the 50s – as the label captured some of the brightest young stars who'd go onto shape a generation! Almost all of this material was originally issued just as 78rpm singles – then later scattered and repackaged in a confusing way – although many tracks here also never made it into the LP or CD generation, either. The folks at Mosaic have worked incredible magic to correct that error – and have pulled together a stunning 10CD package that finally presents this amazing legacy of music in its proper form – complete with notes and session details that were never given in later years, too. There's way too much here to list in this space – but the set features dates recorded under the name of Dexter Gordon, Fats Navarro, Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, Sonny Stitt & Kenny Dorham's Bebop Boys, Allen Eager, Kai Winding, Ray Brown, Eddie Davis, Serge Chaloff, Kenny Hagood, Leo Parker, Tadd Dameron, Teddy Reig, Brew Moore, Milt Jackson, Kenny Clarke, and Gil Fuller – all with groups that are filled with equally hip and important musicians too. We love Mosaic all the time – but with a collection of 78rpm material, they really knock it out of the park – and do us, and the jazz history books, a mighty big favor! CD

✨✧ Lee MorganLee Morgan Indeed! (RVG remaster edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of an early album from Lee Morgan – quite different than his work as a leader for the Savoy label during the same period! Although Morgan's only a wee lad at the time, the album's got an incredible sense of warmth and imagination – one that's steeped in lessons learned from Horace Silver and Art Blakey, and played with a style that's as richly expressive as it is soulful – a no-nonsense, no-tricks approach to the trumpet that gave Morgan a voice that was clearly different from predecessors like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Fats Navarro! The album's got a stellar lineup that includes Horace Silver, Wilbur Ware, and Philly Joe Jones – plus the virtually unknown Clarence Sharpe, who makes a rare appearance on alto on this session! The whole thing's great, and filled with unique titles that include "Reggie Of Chester", "Little T", "Gaza Strip", and "Roccus". CD features a bonus alternate take of "Little T". CD

✨✧ Bud PowellComplete Blue Note Recordings 1949 to 1958 (5LP set) ... LP
Mosaic/Blue Note, Late 40s/1950s. Near Mint- 5LPs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
5LPs, and just about every track that Bud recorded for Blue Note (except, we think, for a few more alternate takes that may have shown up in recent years.) Most of the set's straight numbers, and there's less "alternates" here than you'd think – which makes sense, because Blue Note actually released this material on as many albums as were in the box. Most tunes are in trio format – with either Paul Chambers, Curly Russell, Sam Jones, or George Duviver on bass, and either Art Taylor, Max Roach, or Philly Joe Jones on drums – but there's also material from the famous quintet session that included Sonny Rollins, Fats Navarro, Tommy Potter, and Roy Haynes. Titles include "Dry Soul", "John's Abbey", "Sub City", "Bud On Bach", "Buster Rides Again", "Duid Deed", "Cleopatra's Dream", "Borderick", and "Blue Pearl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes booklet, and in nice shape!)
